There’s no denying that when it comes to adding custom style to your car, private number plates are by far the strongest investment for your any vehicle. They can a fantastic reflection of your personality, a beautiful tribute to the car itself, a friendly joke between friends or, well, just about anything you can imagine.

Thousands of private number plates are sold every day, but there are always some questions customers have both before and after they buy their plates. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to the frequently asked questions that we hear so very often. Let’s get started, shall we?

Q: Are there any restrictions on the type of registration older vehicles can have?

A: Depending on the age of your car, there may be restrictions on what registrations will be suitable.

If your chosen personalised registration number has an age identifier prefix (like 62), you can only put that number onto a vehicle of an equal age or newer. This is to prevent people buying custom plates which deceive potential buyers about the age of a car. It’s a slight annoyance, but an acceptable one, given how frustrating it would be to be deceived by a custom plate.

Q: Are there any special requirements my car has to meet?

A: There are a handful of hoops your vehicle has to jump through. Your vehicle must be:

• An appropriate age to receive the personalised plate (see the above answer)
• Registered in the UK (or about to be) in your name or the name of the person you’re buying the plate for
• Taxed or SORN registered at the time of registration
• Complete with MoT or Goods Vehicle Test certificate

If your car meets all these requirements, you’ll be able to purchase a personalised number plate.

Q: Can I buy a private registration plate as a gift?

A: Yes! In fact, many customers buy number plates as gifts for friends and family and the process couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is provide your details as well as those of the person you’re buying the plate for, so that you can be recorded as the purchaser of the registration number.

If the vehicle you’re wanting to put the plates onto isn’t registered in your name, you simply just us their details as the name of the ‘nominee’ to your purchase. Just make sure that it matches the name of the registered keeper of the vehicle you’re wanting to put the number plate onto. Simple!

Time is an interesting factor. Toyo needs to get through the day and save those that are in need. That is what a guardian does as a daily chore. The white rabbit tells Toyo that he is late and there are people in desperate need of help.

Night time is always present in the woods. The trees block every bit of light and help the predators with their hunting. A little girl bearing a red cape runs away from the wolf that has spotted her in its territory. Toyo sees this and distracts the wolf long enough for the little girl to run away to safety. The sidekick pops out from the other end of the dirt path to assist the hero. The wolf will have to find a different dinner tonight.

Meanwhile, a young woman is being enslaved to do her step sisters chores. She is noble, too, and shouldn’t be working this way. She wants to go to the yearly function that takes place in the castle upon the hill. The Toyo guardians drift around the corner and give the noble girl beautiful white shoes that will surely not break. Their magic also gives her a lovely purple ball gown that will make her the most beautiful lady at the dance.

They drift around the wealthier part of town and scare all the nobles because they treat the less advantaged badly. In this part of town, they have benefits such as sunlight and sanitation.

Turning into a darker part of town they see a girl that is freezing from the cold and darkness. Her only request to people is to light her candle so that her family can be warm. Toyo speeds past her fast enough to light her candle. She smiles, thankful that someone has provided her with fire.

The young woman is on her way to the castle in a beautiful carriage pulled along by a white horse. The white horse is a noble steed that is taking her to a happy future. She walks up the marble staircase with her dress flowing gracefully behind her. She meets the prince at the top of the staircase. The prince dances with her and spins her around; showing the young woman that she is the only one for him.

The Toyo guardians are the heroes and no matter what the conditions may be, they create happy endings. Whenever you need a miracle or a little help, their tyres will always be there to guide you to safety and amazing destinations.

Time is an interesting concept. You never know when you will run out of time and when you will need more of it at any given moment.

Halloween might be a harvesting season but it sure is fun to dress up and create eerie settings for the festival. When considering a creepy look think about the theme itself: sharp, dark colours and bold.

Lenso Samurai Wheels

The Samurai range of Lenso has a sword like effect that gives any passer-by the creeps. The spokes on some of the wheels also seem spider-like because of the way they reach out to the lip of the wheel.

Lenso Black Angel Wheels

The name of this says it all. The wheels also have interesting effects that could go with the whole Halloween theme. Certain models have a warped design that looks like a “gaze into the future”.

Storm Corse Wheels

This range has spokes that look like the head of a bat. To stick to the creepy Halloween theme, the black version of this wheel is what you should get. The edging of each spoke also has a silver finishing that will illuminate when light hits the face of the model.

Scarlet Bravus Wheels

Scarlet is known to have a deep red on the inside of the wells. Now, imagine having spokes that look pointy and horror-like with a touch of red in the wheel wells? Your look will be complete with this specific wheel.

Scarlet Explorer Wheels

This model is made specifically for off-road cars but the design could fit in with the Halloween theme. Each spoke seems to be attached to a brace on the lining of the wheel. It looks similar to an experimental contraption for aliens. If you have a science fiction themed costume then you could incorporate your car with your whole look.

If you are the brave kind of person you could also experiment with colourful rims. Neon is a colour that usually grabs the attention of people at night. Neon can also be seen late at night because of how it reflects light.

We don’t celebrate Halloween like people once used to in the past. Nowadays, it has become a fun day where everyone can dress up and have parties with their friends and families. If we can dress ourselves up, why not use our cars and the Lenso wheels to complete the look for an extra special effect? Being bold is the intention of this holiday these days and we can express ourselves in more ways than on any other day of the year.
